Congress is technologically disabled. They ruled india for five years during the internet revolution and they could do nothing to empower the people of india by spreading the availability of high speed broadband.
Congress lists castes, lands in trouble
As Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Meira Kumar is above party lines. Now, it's her own party, the Congress that has dragged her into a controversy.
The Bihar Congress has listed her as a permanent invitee of the State Congress. Ignoring the fact that she holds a Constitutional office, the Bihar Congress has a listed her as a permanent invitee of the State Congress.
Worse, on a list, it has specified castes on a list of nearly 600 members of the party in Bihar. For Meira Kumar, it listed her as a \"chamar\". That violates the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act which bans the use of caste names.
A furious Meira Kumar said, \"I believe in strict neutrality of the Chair even though I belong to a political party.\"
An embarrassed Congress accused the media of stealing a confidential document. \"This is an internal Congress document, and should not have been highlighted by the media,\" said Jagdish Tytler, who is in charge of the Bihar Congress. He added that the document does not reflect the official policy of the party.
Rahul left stunned and forced to apologize.
According to the video above, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Monday said “sorry” to the students gathered at Darbhanga area’s Lalit Narayan Mithila University in Bihar as what he said for using the word ‘Gujarat’ instead of ‘Bihar’.
Rahul, who had begun a two-day visit to the state to shore up support for the Congress, found that his comment on Gujarat did not find favor with the students of Lalit Narayan Mithila University.
Rahul said that for India to be changed, Gujarat needed to be changed first. This sparked off protests, with students saying that the meeting was not the platform for making political statements.
“What about the condition of Bihari youths in Congress ruled Maharashtra and even under the central rule of your party? Why are you involving Gujarat here?” angry students shouted.
Gandhi tried to convince the gathering that it was just a sleep of tongue, but students were not in mood to listen to him and Rahul had to flee eventually.
It was generally felt that Rahul used this slogan: ‘for India to be changed, Gujarat needed to be changed first’ to collect Muslim votes in Bihar as the state has considerably well amount of Muslim votes.
